Learning goals are very important in the N-8 structure of The Town School, located at 540 East 76th Street in NYC. The school serves children from Nursery through 8th grade (N-8), which allows them to focus on the younger set of children and a learning program that will focus on them, keep the focus on them and help them achieve their learning goals:
- Open Mindedness
- Critical Thinking
- Lifelong Learning
Town’s program balances the traditional and the innovative, emphasizing excellence in academics and a thorough exposure to the arts and physical education. We teach children to think creatively, read critically and reason logically, stressing the value of both individual learning and collaboration. We are committed to diversity, teaching students to be inclusive and to respect themselves and others.
The Town School was founded in 1913 and has always been a school of balance, being both innovative and traditional. The Town School works for the children and their families, because everyone works together; students, teachers, parents and staff come together in the belief that there is not just joy but strength in the N-8 community.
